Could It Be The Music

Music - the mood changer, the booty shaker, baby maker - Music - Soothes the soul, makes you whole, or feeling alone to - Music - What a wonderful gift! It inspires and creates all types of energy and emotions. Now, the thing is separating what was created by music, from what already existed!

Is it Love, or could it just be the music?

It's amazing how much power music has over us, it plays our heart strings like a harp and we become willing puppets. We hate songs associated with bad relationships and love those attached to good. Music jogs our memory and gives us hope...sometimes false hope. It'll have you making phone calls you probably shouldn't, or deciding a certain person is "made for you" is it all true or could it just be that music?

I LOVE music and artist with the ability to speak to me inspiring(ly). TMI, but I think music adds to an intimate setting and I try to never go without it. Here's one of my favorite artist sweeping the airwaves today...have a listen to this. There are no pictures in this youtube and I'm glad, because there's no distraction with visuals...just listen to the orchestra in the back providing that angelic melody as you take in those words, but don't take in TOO much. (lol)

Ne-Yo "Say It"



When you've got music like this going around it's no wonder people think they're fallen in love!

p.s. For those of you who can't do youtube at work...I've put the song in my inspirations section off to the right.

Shame I know but honey let me tell you! Prince Adore, Erykah Badu I Want U, John Legend (that one song thats only like a minute and some change), Jill Scott (the one she talkin bout continents and all that) *shew* Ok I'm done now! LOL!

The soundtrack to our lives Shug! I like the words, especially if they are saying something, but I'm really attracted to the sounds, the harmonies, the lush arrangements (which does not include today's ripped and zipped keyboard loops and synthetic drum beats). I like the old school real instruments, horns, strings and bass.
EWF's "Fantasy and I Write A Song For You" (anything of theirs really)
Satch cryin' about "I Want to Be Free" with bandmates the Ohio Players.
Jones Girls explaining "Nights Over Egypt" to me.
Teddy Pendergrass, Barry White, chile don't get me started.

Music makes me___________.

Organized Noise said...

I'm just glad that there is some people out there still making good music. Ne-yo, Raheem DeVaughn, Balil, Vivian Green, Leela James, Common, and a few others are keeping my faith in the future of music.

It is just music. When the music stops rockin' and the sexual fever is over. Is love what is left?

Music is my refuge. Couldn't live without it.

I remember when I first moved out on my own, my parents gave me money for a bedroom set, I didn't get one, I got a bad ass stereo though. Lol.

Ohhhh and an air mattress.

Great Post.
